INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Gamers are not the only people who flock to Gen Con. The convention also plays host to “cosplay fans,” which are people who dress up as their favorite sci-fi characters.

Jessica West, an Indianapolis resident, joined 24-Hour News 8’s studios Friday morning to talk about the process it took to make her seven-foot-tall chewbacca outfit.

In the videos above, you can watch West putting the costume together, plus the full in-person interview.
